Hike up to the pool was really nice, and the sceneary was really cool. Unfortunately the pool was empty, they must have been cleaning it. Looking down at the pool floor, it looked very slimy. We didn't check the changerooms, but I heard it wasn't...More

The other reviewers have covered the change rooms conditions (and in some reviews I read, they suggested you could use the discarded swim ware inside the rooms - forget it unless you really want to catch an unspecified disease). The place itself is great and...More

You have to drive on a gravel road for about a mile, and then walk 10-15 minutes to the pool, but it is well worth it. The views of the canyon, the snowy mountains, the waterfalls and the river are worth it. The pool is...More

Let’s be clear: this place should get an excellent rate but... the 3 changing rooms were so filthy that they looked like homeless squats... we changed with our kids outside ... no other way. This aside, it is stunning! You have a short beautiful walk...More

Definitely worth the walk to see this! We visited in May and water was too cool for my liking but still a nice adventure.

Visited early morning so swam in my own. I don’t mind that it’s algae covered although I wish people would remove their own rubbish. Magical.

Don’t expect luxury changing rooms and a chlorine pool, but instead a dirty room and an algae slime pool. But wow, how close to nature can you be! Really cool experience, even if it takes 20 minutes and a hop over a stream to get...More

Okay, all of Iceland is magical, but this place was just something else. The scenery was beautiful, and it'll be a swim I'll never forget. The water was a little cool the day we came, but we had the entire place to ourselves, and it...More

We were staying near here and thought we would have a look here. The road to the small parking area was bad with lots of pot holes in the deepish snow so you will definitely need a 4x4 to get here. We parked the car...More

Seljavallaug is a place for a quick dip if in the area. Located a short drive north of the ring road, there is a small area to park your car, and hike about 20 minutes up the small canyon. Stick to the left side of...More

I don't know where the campsite is, but the parking area to the hotspring is about 20-25 minute walk.

If you're concerned about road conditions, check Road.is online. They update it regularly and can give you a good idea of conditions. The secondary or F-Roads really change depending on the time of year.
